Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday said he will take emergency executive action to stop the use of coronavirus vaccine passports in the Sunshine State.

“It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply be able to participate in normal society,” DeSantis said.

“You want the fox to guard the henhouse? I mean, give me a break,” DeSantis added. “I think this is something that has huge privacy implications. It is not necessary to do. And I’m going to be taking some action in an executive function and emergency function here very shortly.”

 

DeSantis also urged the state legislature to take more permanent action on the issue.
